Re: Glen Campbell's Mosrite Celebrity I

This was on Bill Mack's Facebook page. This Mosrite seems to show up from time to time, indicating that Glen probably transitioned to it from the Epiphone, for a hollow body. This is the best picture of the guitar (not Glen) where we see that he had his initials on the 12th fret. Another indication ...

Re: 50 Year True Grit Celebration in Ridgway Colorado this October!

Randy, really they contacted me through the Forums! My love for Colorado and the San Juans is just a coincidental common thread. They were not looking in Debby's direction at the time (last year) and I suggested that she probably would be the most likely to say yes to an invite. I really did no leg ...

The Hitching Post in Albuquerque, NM Where Glen Campbell Played

I t is unusual if you read an article about Glen's time in Albuquerque without The Hitching Post being mentioned. Some say it was Glen's home base, he was seen there so often. Early on, it was with Dick Bills, his uncle, and the Sandia Mountain Boys and in 1958 with Glen's own band, the Western Wra...

Randy, thanks for adding that...I guess if you wear a red bandanna over there, that certifies you as "country". I wonder how big the crowd was!

ashcambanjo I miss the jams we used to have with my dad. Even while dealing with Alzheimer’s he still loved to play music with me and my friends. This is one of my favorite moments out on our back patio in Malibu playing a great Django Reinhardt tune called Minor Swing with the fabulous Benedikt Br...

The Curse of Semie Moseley's Acoustics

Semie Moseley never really knew what he was doing when it came to making acoustic guitars, he was more interested in making electric guitars. The woods were not properly dried out and the construction wasn't beefy enough, and the lacquer finish was put on with too many layers, too quickly. A sum of ...

Re: Glen's Music Videos Through The Years

They got a lot of mileage out the day at the railyard. Or maybe they went there for several shoots. And the merry go around carousel! I am betting that is the one at Griffith Park...the same place Glen had the picture taken in front of the old steam engine (sideburns in that picture were same length...
